FAQ

WHAT IS RELATIONSHIP COACHING?

The relationship coaching methods I use include the following powerful techniques:

  • Gottman Method Couples Therapy
  • Instant Insight Communication Systems™
  • The Client Code™
  • DISC Behavioural Profiling
  • Neuro-Linguistic Programming

These techniques, coupled with my own experiences and inspired by the work of Alice Haemmerle, Michaela Boehm, Steve James, and Esther Perel, will give you tangible tools to transform your relationship.

Relationship Coaching will guide you to become clear about your goals & dreams, both individually and as a couple. While past history is addressed, the focus is on moving into the future with the skills & resources you need to stop repeating old patterns.

HOW IS RELATIONSHIP COACHING DIFFERENT TO MARRIAGE COUNSELLING?

Relationship coaching shares many of the same tools & techniques that are used in traditional counselling or marriage therapy.

The key difference is the training of each practitioner, the school of therapy that informs their approach, and the requirements of professional bodies for registration and supervision. In Australia, coaching does not have a regulating body, nor requirements for registration or supervision.

Having said that, my commitment to professionalism and high standards means that I continually participate in ongoing education, and seek out supervision and mentoring from professionals in this space.

HOW LONG IS A PROGRAM?

Each program is designed to be delivered over three months.

That is because this timeframe provides a framework for you to implement change, while still having ongoing coaching & support.

DO YOU DO TELEPHONE & SKYPE CONSULTS?

Sure do!

Telephone & Skype consults are a life-saver for couples & individual clients. No need to travel, find baby sitters, and juggle busy calendars.

For my interstate clients, please be sure to select the right timezone when you book your sessions!

ARE YOU LOCATED IN THE NEWCASTLE, LAKE MACQUARIE, AND HUNTER VALLEY?

I see clients face-to-face from my office in Toronto in the beautiful Lake Macquarie region, on the land of the Awabakal people.

Parking is easy, and we have a beautiful and private space that overlooks bush land to hold our sessions.

I acknowledge that this land on which I live & work belongs to the Aboriginal people known as the Awabakal. Sovereignty has never been ceded, they are the custodians of this land. I pay my deep respects to Elders past and present, and future.

Tara was able to provide us with some really usefully and tangible tools and info to work with. The outcomes for us were that we were able to really highlight the things that are important to us and put into perspective the trivial things.

Another point that was extremely useful was the different ways that we receive information and the way that we feel appreciated and loved which can be very different for each of us. I would recommend her services for couples at various times in there relationship especially for those that may have lost their way.
